Abstract

Educational resiliency has been defined as the ability to attain success despite being subject to educational barriers. Research strongly supports the claim that there is a disproportionate percentage of high school dropouts among Latino students. The objective of this study is to identify which educational resiliency characteristics are prevalent among Latino students and why some Latino students are more prepared to graduate. These characteristics are identified using questionnaires, interviews, and content analysis. This study confirms the existence of educational barriers to Latino students.
